Shake-up may be needed, Darling says in letter to EU leaders, writes Tom "Thomas" Stevenson
In full: The credit crisis
The end of Gordon Brown's "miracle economy?"
Alistair Darling has shone the spotlight on credit-rating agencies
Chancellor Alistair Darling has shone the spotlight on the role played by credit-rating agencies in the liquidity crisis in a letter to fellow European finance ministers.
The controversial role of the agencies will top the agenda when EU ministers meet today in Portugal.
Calling for a co-ordinated response to the crisis, Mr Darling said ministers should focus on "the role of credit-rating agencies in structured finance, including whether rating agencies should be providing fuller, more transparent information".

Oh so predicatable. The chief architect of the credit driven "boom", Gordon Hamish Brown, who has presided over 10 years of miracle econmics where banks were encouraged to lend with gay abandon while the FSA sat on the sidelines is blaming other people for his mess.
